I almost passed on Sex Machine. Almost. I didn’t have time for another arc. I was just too busy. But there was just something about this book that called to me. I just had a feeling that this book would be the one that would shake up the same old, same old. Marie has always written some amazing stories. And I must say that I have been so very fortunate to be a fan. She’s taken me to the families of Gansett Island… to the halls of Congress in the Fatals. I’ve been to Vermont with the Green Mountain series, even ventured into the naughtier side with Quantum. All have been amazing. But never and I mean, NEVER, have I enjoyed a Marie Force story more than Sex Machine. It is by far her BEST BOOK YET.
From the opening line, Marie lays down the gauntlet and lets the reader know this book is going to burn in the best way. Straight from Honey Carmichael’s mouth to Blake Dempsey’s ears: I want you to fuck me. It only gets steamier and sexier from there. Honey and Blake have known each other all their lives. They grew up together, went to school together… had the same circle of friends. Even suffered through the same tragic loss that took away Blake’s girlfriend, Jordan. She watched him suffer and blame himself. He turned into a shell of man, looking only for one night stands and nothing lasting. He garners a reputation for his impressive… skills. And after all this time and all the empty nights, Honey just wants to know if the rumors are true.
Blake feels empty, lost and guilty. It’s his fault that Jordan is gone. His focus must be his business. He has nothing to give anyone but a few fleeting moments of hot sex. He’s heard the rumors. He knows what everyone thinks – he’s nothing but a sex machine but he’s damn good at it. His friends worry and he knows that. But Honey is different. She’s the only one that can reach him. She’s the only one that he wants more time with, more everything with. She’s the only one that understand the pain of being alone.
They both have a past filled with loneliness, sadness… unspeakable loss and heartbreak. Watching these two build a love life was incredible. It was easy to do – they were always friends first. Yes, they have a red hot sex life. Blake certainly rocks Honey’s world…. he certainly left ME stunned. But this story goes so much further than what is going on between the sheets. This story is about forgiveness, letting go of a soul shattering trauma and finding the strength to begin again with someone who truly understands.
I cannot begin to say how very much I loved this book. I was drawn in from the very first page. The first 25% is so steamy, so breath taking. Unbelievably hot. This story shows Marie’s incredible versatility. This is no sweet romance. It deals with some heartbreaking issues with class and grace. This book is raw and demanding. I laughed as much as I swooned and rooted for Blake and Honey even when it looked like the past would never let them go. As I read the last lines, I was overjoyed with this awesomeness. It is a truly remarkable book and boy, am I glad that I didn’t pass on reading it.
5 Honey Bunches of Oats (you’ll have to read it to understand) Stars!
Blake Dempsey is happy to help Honey with her “problem” as long as she knows he’s only interested in sex. His heart was broken when his high school girlfriend was killed in the car he was driving, and he has nothing to offer other than more orgasms than Honey can handle.
Which is just fine with her—until fantastic orgasms aren’t enough anymore for either of them and unexpected feelings turn hot sex into messy entanglement—and that most definitely wasn’t in the plans.
But you know what they say about plans…
A sexy, dirty stand-alone romance intended for MATURE audiences. If you can’t take the heat in Blake’s bedroom, stay out or you might get burned. You’ve been warned!
Her goals in life are simple—to finish raising two happy, healthy, productive young adults, to keep writing books for as long as she possibly can and to never be on a flight that makes the news.
